Not entirely certain with XP (i'm on Vista), but if your Operating system is 32 Bit, it will only recognise 3Gb of Ram. You need 64 Bit O/S to install more than that.

As for Graphics, i recomend using a single ATI Radeon 4870, preferrably the 1Gb version. This card is the best value for money which gives blistering performance in games.
